Piaget Altiplano Orchid Watch Collection

The orchid family comprises several thousand different flowers, but Piaget has chosen four of them to adorn the dials of Piaget Altiplano models. Bearing the fascinating names of Cattleya, Doritaenopsis-Kenneth Schubert, Doritaenopsis-Malibu Easter and Dendrobium-Pale Doreen, they were selected to grace the four one-of-a-kind creations painted using the technique of miniature enamelling.

Taking full advantage of the spacious dial, the petals unfurl across the entire surface in a spectacular array of colours and slender veins.

To achieve this result, the enameller used the miniature technique serving to reproduce motifs on a small scale in enamel. It took the craftsman a full month of work to achieve the final result that also involved a second technique: flinqué enamelling. Used here to create the background, this method is based on a guilloche-work surface covered with a transparent and lightly tinted surface.

Each unique in its own right, these dials are housed within 18-carat white gold cases set with brilliant-cut diamonds. Inside it throbs the brand’s pride and joy: the Piaget 430P ultra-thin mechanical hand-wound movement.
